  • Employers whose new apprentice started at college or with another training provider from 1 August 2019
  • Employers who have a combined PAYE and Net CIS sub-contractor wage bill of below £400,000 as declared on their 2019 Levy Return
  • Employers whose levy details and payments are up to date
  • Newly registered employers
